I have a 2014 LX with 215/70R16 tires. With the high sidewalls I can feel the tires flex on turns. Handling feels mushy.

My tires are due for replacement and I'm considering upgrading my wheels at the same. I don't want to mess with anything that will throw off my speedo, TPMS, etc.

Tirerack recommend these tires to improve sidewall stiffness: Premier Michelin Premier LTX

What are my options? Can I go to larger wheels but not wider tires?

Thank you, very handy calculator.

Will tires with stiffer sidewalls on my current 16" wheels help with the mushy handling?

I'm a big fan of Michelins so brownie points for having them on the list.
Take a moment to see if any HR rated tires in your size or similar size exist. HR have stiffer sidewalls.
